How to Make a GIF from Video with Photoshop

Hello guys! Today i will be showing you a simple method of making GIFs in Photoshop CC. You may ask, what is a GIF? A GIF is a short animated image that plays in a loop, and can be viewed anywhen and anywhere. In comparison to a video, GIFs are much smaller files that are more suitable for viewing over slow internet or mobile connections. Sound interesting eh? so here is noob-friendly GIF-making guide for Photoshop warriors. Before you can even begin this, to make a GIF from video with Photoshop, you will need (of course) a video clip. Make sure it isn't too long, because usually GIFs work best when they are short and full of awesomeness. No more than three seconds, five seconds at max.

First, make sure the animaton frame box is at the bottom. In Photoshop CC you have to go to Window>Timeline, make sure the checkmark by Timeline is checked.

Now your GIF will be automatically set at a time, it will most likely be way too fast. You can change it to anytime you want, make sure its not too fast, but not too slow either. To change all layers at once, select all by clicking the little box with the arrow and the timeline and cilck select all. All frames will be highlighted, then go on any of the frames and click the number with the down arrow to change the timing (i prefer 0,1 usually, but just see what works best). You can delete any unwanted frames, by clicking on the little trash can at the bottom of the timeline.

Once you are happy with the result, simply go to File>Save For Web to export. Photoshop offers lots of settings that allow you to decrease the file size. You need to find the smallest file size at which your GIF looks okay - any more than 1MB and it will slow up web page load times.
